Earthkeepers Summer Camp
A mysterious, unseen character known as E.M. permeates the Earthkeepers program. As the keeper of the keys, E.M. is everyone’s dream of the wizard of the woods. Becoming an Earthkeepers is an important task and each learner is rewarded after each step with a special key. These keys open real locks on boxes that contain secret meanings about the true nature of E.M.
As the learners earn four keys for their keyrings, they not only discover how life functions ecologically on the earth, they find out how they are a part of our environmental problems and their solutions.
